Steam Breaks Concurrent Player Record Again to Start 2022

2021 was a very special year for Valve’s PC gaming storefront Steam. On November 28, Steam broke its concurrent user record by amassing a stunning 27.4 million user peak, with 7.8 million of those users currently in-game. It wasn’t the first time Steam had broken the record in 2021, and it looks like it won’t be a long-lasting record, either. Valve has yet again broken its Steam concurrent user record as of January 2, 2022, reaching nearly 28 million users online at one time.
